I am so dissapointed with my appointment yesterday. I live in Fort Wayne, relatively popular city in Indiana. Maggie dresses are only available at one store in Fort Wayne and two stores in Indy. So yesterday I went to try some on and told the lady I wanted Maggie dresses only and they had a TUN. Somehow she kept bringing me over dresses that were nothing like Maggie designs and I was just not interested.
Now I am wanting to find my Maggie through the website and call them with the # and just order it through them. If the Indy places are anything like this one I don’t want to bother with driving there and back to be pressured into some other designer.
I don”t know what I should do – I just know I will get a Maggie in the end. lol =]

I’m pretty sure you can’t order maggie dresses online. That sucks that she kept bringing you the wrong dresses when you specifically had a vision in mind. You could always try going back to that store but asking for a different consultant.

You should be able to go to that store and work with a consultant who helps you find a dress according to your preferences, not hers. If you return to the same store and ask for a manager and explain the situation, you will probably get special care and maybe even be able to score some kind of discount.
[Disclaimer: I’m not telling the OP to take advantage of anyone. But if she makes someone with some power aware of the poor experience she had, she may get better service, and may even get something (a discount perhaps) to make up for the bad customer service.]

go to another shop, and ask them if they can order it online for you, there might be a way you can get it, some how.

Call Pearl’s Place in Louisiana (Google it). It’s a real bridal shop that does phone orders for pretty much any designer. I know for a fact the cary Maggie dresses, since I called them about mine. I have ordered the bridesmaid dresses for 4 weddings that I have stood up in a swell as mine and they are an absolute dream to work with. Plus their prices are way better and the time it takes is much shorter!

Thanks everyone for the replies. I was saying I could find the dresss I want and call into the store and have them order it. I know you CANT order Maggie dresses online. lol.
I was just asking if I should do that or just drive out to the other store in Indy and hope they have better service/the dress I wanted.

@lonelystar63: There was one store where we had particularly poor service. After talking with a manager, the service still didn’t improve, so we refused to purchase anything from that store. If that helps at all. 🙂
